  • Charles Gaines - Gene Lee's memories

    By the way, Korby or Ms. Peggy, I showed Dad the photo and asked Dad was he that handsome and Dad said he was but that he remembered him looking much tougher! A true Marine!

  • To an American HERO from my Dad - Gene Lee!

    Posted on 5/8/18 - by Randall E. Lee randallelee@hotmail.com
    Charles Gaines is a name that I heard throughout my life. He and my now 82-year-old dad, Gene Lee, served at Parris Island together when about 20 years of age. They and another Marine from MS (Dad can't remember his name) rode with them from NC to MS on several trips home. On one of their trips, Dad met Carol Joy May from Little Rock, MS, who became my Mom. Charles either met or already knew Peggy-his future wife. I have had the honor of meeting Ms. Peggy and daughter Korby. God Bless the Gaines family and their true American Hero-Charles Gaines who Dad said received a battlefield commission!

    I was at the wall today, saw your name etched into eternity. Thank You for your sacrifice. Never met you personally but I finished High School with your son Kerry, we played football together at Newton High, you'd be proud he represented you well and he looks just like you. R.I.P. See you on the Green.

The Wall of Faces

Brought to you by the organization that built The Wall, the Vietnam Veterans Virtual Memorial Wall is dedicated to honoring, remembering and sharing the legacies of all those who died in the Vietnam War. Here you can go beyond the names on The Wall to see the faces, share the stories and read the remembrances posted by friends, neighbors, classmates and family members.

All of these photos will be showcased in The Education Center at The Wall on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. To learn more about the effort to collect these photos and ensure their faces will never be forgotten, visit www.buildthecenter.org.
